Curriculum Overview

St. Helen School strives to educate the whole person in an atmosphere of academic excellence. Our curriculum follows the curriculum guidelines of the Archdiocese of Miami and is in compliance with the state education requirements. It is designed to prepare students to succeed and prepare them for any rigorous middle and high school academic programs by providing a firm foundation in fundamental knowledge and skills; encouraging intellectual exposure and depth of study; and inspiring creativity and critical analysis. Solid as it is, our curriculum is in a continuous state of evolution as we aim to equip each new incoming class with the tools, confidence, abilities demanded by our increasingly complex world, and with a small class number, teachers are able to assist students to attend their goals on a one-on-one basis.

The core curriculum consists of

  • Language arts
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social studies
  • Religion
  • Reading

The emphasis on essential knowledge in our core curriculum is time-tested and well-proven to best prepare students for the road ahead, regardless of the academic path they may choose.

Additional courses in the following subjects provide students with a well-rounded knowledge.

  • Spanish
  • art
  • music
  • technology
  • physical education
  • STREAM

These courses are provided so that students may broaden their academic exposure, explore particular interests, and challenge their special talents. In addition to the six core classes required in each grade level, students will be required to take these additional courses as prescribed by their particular grade level curriculum.

SCHOOL MASS

THEME: THE FEAST OF SAINT AGNES

The Feast of Saint Agnes is January 21st. She is the patron saint of young girls. Born in 291 AD in Rome, Italy. St. Agnes is one of the most famous early Christian virgin martyrs and she is mentioned in one of the Eucharistic prayers of the Mass. Because of the legend around her martyrdom, Saint Agnes is patron saint of those seeking chastity and purity. She is also the patron saint of young girls and girl scouts.

According to tradition, Agnes was a beautiful girl, about 12 or 13 years old, who refused marriage, stating that she would have no spouse but Jesus Christ.

Her suitors revealed her Christianity, which was then condemned as a cult. After refusing to renounce her faith, she was murdered during the persecution of the Christians by the Roman emperor Diocletian and was buried beside the Via Momentanes.
